We know that government of Pakistan, military, the media, people and everyone else is desperate for the peace in the country. Everyone is fed up of the terrorism and the lawlessness. Most of the Pakistanis are now convinced that Taliban terrorists cannot be tamed without using the power, and then there are some who still [...]
